Have played Bloodborne, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2 so far, and this guy has been the hardest boss I've faced in any of them, surpassing my personal bullies the Capra Demon and his godforsaken dogs. I usually beat most bosses on my 2nd or 3rd try, and around 5-10 tries for some of the tougher ones. I went in naked dual wielding a rapier+10 and a warped sword+5. I used the Chloranthy+1, Flynn's, Old Leo, and Flame Quartz+3 rings. I lost the exact count, but Fumey(started cursing him by this name to retain my sanity) took me somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-30 tries. I figured out how to dodge most of the attacks in the first phase(except for that rare second swing of the big sword which almost always caught me) in the first 10 tries or so, but the second phase left little room for error. I was raging and wanting to quit.
Then, by some miracle, he didn't enter the second phase until he was practically on his last legs. Twohanding the rapier in sheer desperation, I clung to his right leg like I was trying to hump it and rolled through the fireballs whenever he spat them out. I only had to hit him a few times to put us both out of our misery. I was so hyped and relieved I screamed, "F***, yeah!" in the middle of the night.
